[2010] EWCA Civ 1347

Court of Appeal judgment on CFS appeal

Marcus Grant appeared for the Respondents in a CFS claim for c. £295,000 brought by the Appellant following an accident in December 2001. HHJ Knight QC rejected the Appellant’s claim at first instance that the car accident had caused the onset of the CFS. Instead he found that the CFS pre-dated the accident which had resulted in a short lived neck injury and a mild exacerbation in the CFS condition. The Appellant appealed and the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal upholding the judgment below for the reasons given by the Judge.
